The curried tempeh I’m sharing today makes one tasty, high protein sandwich filling! For my work lunch box, I love to serve it in a seeded bap with some juicy tomato slices, diced red pepper, fresh green leaves and a dollop of vegan mayo or mango chutney. Just like tofu, I find that adding a couple of slices of tempeh to my lunchtime sandwich really helps to power me through the afternoon and keeps me feeling full for hours.

Old Fashioned English Bread Pudding (Dairy Free / Egg Free / Vegan)
Today I’m delighted to be sharing the recipe for one of my favourite childhood treats – Old Fashioned English Bread Pudding. Its name certainly doesn’t do it justice though, as it tastes nothing like bread nor would I describe it as a pudding! Instead, it is more like a sweet, dense fruit cake. It is delicious served with a hot cuppa, and also makes a fantastic energy-boosting snack to stash in your backpacks for hikes and bike rides. I think this year, all of us have been spending a lot more time outdoors and we definitely need some tasty snacks to keep us fuelled and put a spring in our step. This bread pudding definitely fits that bill!
Chocolate Orange Energy Balls
As many of you will know, I am a big fan of home-made energy balls. Not only are they delicious, but they also happen to be packed full of nutrient-rich ingredients such as oats, dates and nuts that help to boost our energy levels, and support good health in general. Each ball is filled with protein, heart-healthy fats, complex carbohydrates, fibre, plus a whole host of minerals and antioxidant compounds. It’s amazing just how much goodness fits inside one little ball!
Healthy AND delicious? That’s definitely my favourite kind of snack!
